Embattled Trump HHS official claims CDC 'sedition,' urges Trump supporters to 'buy ammunition'
Over the weekend, multiple news outlets broke the story that Trump's appointed assistant secretary of public affairs in the Department of Health and Human Services and his assistants have been watering down or blocking key reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention known as the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Reports. Not only have Michael Caputo and aide Paul Alexander been engaged in ongoing battle with CDC scientists over findings that contradict Trump's own rosy claims, during the nationwide COVID-19 pandemic, but they have done so while accusing CDC scientists of writing "hit pieces" meant to damage the administration—and the claims both men have made, in confronting CDC scientists, have been so broadly conspiratorial in nature as to raise questions about both men's fitness for the job.

Those questions are now going to be on the top of the agenda, because Trump appointee Caputo has responded to the allegations against him with an absolutely batshit Facebook video in which Caputo accuses CDC scientists with "sedition" for the content of their reports, claims an anti-Trump "resistance unit" is operating inside the CDC, claims he is in real personal danger of being killed by anti-Trump forces, and launched into a string of off-the-rails conspiracy theories that culminated in him urging Trump supporters to "buy ammunition" in preparation for a Biden attempt to seize the presidency from Trump.

Re: Embattled Trump HHS official claims CDC 'sedition,' urges Trump supporters to 'buy ammunition'
As reported by The New York Times, the core of actual HHS "communications" head Caputo's rant was an extended conspiracy theory premised around the "deep state." In response to the release of emails showing his and Alexander's conspiracy-laced interference in the CDC's scientific reports, Caputo confirms he believes there is a "resistance unit" of the CDC that is writing (accurate) reports on the severity of the pandemic in order to undermine Donald Trump. But that is small-ball, compared to his other claims. Health and Human Services Assistant Secretary Caputo went the full Alex Jones.

"You understand that they’re going to have to kill me, and unfortunately, I think that’s where this is going."

"I don’t like being alone in Washington." There are "shadows on the ceiling in my apartment," shadows that are "so long."

Caputo claimed that the Trump supporter killed during a confrontation with protesters in Portland, Oregon, "was a drill," and that "when Donald Trump refuses to stand down at the inauguration, the shooting will begin. The drills that you’ve seen are nothing. If you carry guns, buy ammunition, ladies and gentlemen, because it’s going to be hard to get."
